Inafa'maolek outdoors offers nature adventures to strengthen connection youth and families have with themselves, community and nature. It's an invitation for extended family (community) to move and experience stillness together in nature. Whether we are hiking in the mountains, playing by the ocean , breathing fresh air under giant redwood trees, bike-riding over concrete and recognizing the earth below our adventure together provides an opportunity to have fun, care for our bodies and our earth.
Outtings are led by lifetime physical fitness and wellness educator Verna Castro. For 37 years she has coached youth sports and mentored adults, athletic directors, facilitated teacher trainings, taken students abroad for travel and sports exchange programs as well as facilitated camps and taught physical education. She hopes to share her love of physical activity and nature with the next generation and families.
We will follow COVID recommendations of Alameda County. Care has been given to select trails that provide wider trails and outdoor spaces to accomodate all. All activities are rated easy to moderate. If there are challenges that you might experience, please let the Verna know during registration so we can assist with accommodations.
Let's have some fun outdoors Hope to see you soon, inafa'maolek!
